THE FLYERS will open their preseason slate on Monday, Sept. 21, when they host the New York Islanders at PPL Center in Allentown. It will be the first-ever NHL game played in the Lehigh Valley. The Sixers played a preseason game against Orlando in Allentown last Oct. 18. The Flyers' trip to PPL Center is expected to replace their annual trek to London, Ontario, to play at beautiful Budweiser Gardens - where they have visited every September since 2006, except when the 2012-13 preseason was canceled by the NHL lockout.

BUFFALO - From Bill Barber to John Stevens to Terry Murray, just one man without a tie as a Flyers player has been head coach of the Phantoms in the 19 years since the Flyers purchased managing control of their American Hockey League affiliate. That may change this summer. The Flyers interviewed Kris Knoblauch, who coached Connor McDavid and the Erie Otters to the Ontario Hockey League championship series this spring, during the NHL combine in Buffalo last week, according to sources.

BUFFALO - When the Flyers make the seventh overall pick in the NHL draft on June 26, they may have a choice between defenseman Ivan Provorov or forwards Lawson Crouse, Kyle Connor, Mathew Barzal, Mikko Rantanen, or Pavel Zacha. Craig Button, the former Calgary general manager who is a draft expert for TSN in Canada, admires all of the players, but he says Provorov, 18, is the best of the group. "He has everything," Button said while watching players go through fitness testing Saturday at the NHL scouting combine.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - Nearly three weeks after his hiring, Dave Hakstol is still sorting out who will join him on the Flyers' bench as assistant coaches. One thing is clear: One of Hakstol's assistants from North Dakota, Dane Jackson, will not relocate to Philadelphia. Hakstol approached Jackson about the opportunity, but Jackson - who played 45 NHL games and coached with Hakstol for nine seasons - declined because of family reasons. Jackson's wife, Carrie, has roots in the Grand Forks area.

BUFFALO - Two players from the Czech Republic - center Pavel Zacha and goalie Daniel "Darth" Vladar - are high on the Flyers' radar and will be given strong consideration during the June 26-27 NHL draft. After finishing the grueling fitness testing at the NHL scouting combine Saturday in Buffalo, both confirmed they were interviewed by the Flyers. Zacha, a speedy and physical 6-foot-3, 210-pounder, could be available when the Flyers pick at No. 7, but he will certainly be gone by the time they make their second pick, which will be at 29th or 30th, depending on Tampa Bay's finish in the Stanley Cup Finals.

BUFFALO - After interviewing 70 to 80 prospects at the NHL scouting combine this week, Flyers scouting director Chris Pryor believes he gained some valuable information that will help make the team's decisions easier. The Flyers have two first-round picks and seven selections in the first four rounds of the draft, which will be held June 26-27 in Sunrise, Fla. Centers Connor McDavid (Erie of the OHL) and Jack Eichel (Boston University) are expected to be drafted 1-2, respectively, by Edmonton and Buffalo.

THE NHL DRAFT is 22 days away, but there is little intrigue as to how Round 1 will begin on June 26 in Sunrise, Fla. - not with two generational talents who have set themselves apart from the rest. Connor McDavid will go No. 1 to Edmonton. Jack Eichel will quickly follow at No. 2 to Buffalo. After that? Anyone's guess. But with a crop of talent that rivals the all-time deep draft class of 2003 - when the Flyers nabbed Jeff Carter at No. 11 and Mike Richards at No. 24 - the Flyers are in a solid position to pick at No. 7. "I think as a group, this might be as good as that group back in 2003," Flyers director of scouting Chris Pryor said yesterday in a conference call from the draft combine in Buffalo.

Flyers scouting director Chris Pryor thinks this year's NHL draft, which is loaded with gifted forwards, may be as good as the star-studded 2003 class. "Obviously we don't want to be picking this high every year," Pryor said in a conference call Wednesday from Buffalo, site of the NHL scouting combine. "But if we had to, we're fortunate to have some nice options. . . . It's a good year to have the picks we have. " The Flyers have two first-round picks and seven selections in the first four rounds of the draft, to be held June 26-27, making this year's combine more intriguing than usual for the team's scouting staff.
